Theres about 6-8 inches of water so far, so a long way tog o still. lol As soon as it gets halfway though i am adding the rock, so the water level will really jump.
I still havent done those water tests on the rock containers, lol, took a little nap but i guess i will do that now.
Still havent figured out where to put the power strips, I am leaning towards the inside right wall, its about 3 feet away from the sump. I considered putting a plastic shoebox over it like was mentioned here but I would need 2 of the boxes and they just wont fit really. This build i am looking for simplicity and cleanness, I dont want a squid of wires or a messy pile of crap LOL.
On a bright note i have been window shopping for leds.
So far the cheapest dimmable ones are like $130 each with free shipping so that would be $390 total which is a steal. I've also been pricing the ones with timers and the cheapest I have found are about $200 each. While I would love to have them I dont know if I will be able to swing it. So far I have about $50 saved in my paypal account towards them. I guess it will kinda depend on how well i sell stuff. LOL I got married one month ago today and have an entire room full of wedding decorations, linens and so much other stuff that I have been listing online and selling. If a few of the high price things sell then i can do the timer led
's, if not I will be stuck with the regular dimmable panels.
I also checked out my reefkeeper controller's warranty and it expires around Christmas, so I sent them an email about the 3 bad power strips and am waiting on a response from them. Keeping my fingers crossed but I dont think it will work out, but its worth a try.
Hmmm Hmmmm..... trying to think of the thousands of things I have planned or am doing, so much to do! I love it! The best part of a build right next to stocking is this part. hehehe
Does anyone use power strips that have individual controllers and on/off switches for each socket? I use one on my biocube and it rocks!
I have this one
